Through the generosity of the Bishop's Technology Grant and two parents, we have added 60 Chrome Books to our Technology Department! The goal is to train the teachers on their implementation and usage in the academic forum for September for grades 3-8. 
One of our Middle States goals was to incorporate the educational concept of Differentiated Instruction. In the area of Reading instruction, students will be assessed according to their individual reading level using the benchmark testing program known as Fountas and Pinnell. Once individual levels are established, the children will be able to access reading materials on their level using the chrome books.
They will also be implemented in the other academic subject areas such as Math, Social Studies, Science and Religion.
We are extremely grateful for the kindness of our parents and the Bishop who have made this dream a reality. 
Thank You!

A very special THANK YOU to Mrs. Mott, Mrs. Schneider and my wonderful students for this trimester's publication of our newspaper, The Scribe. Your excellence in reporting and writing is to be commended! It has been sent to all parents electronically.



Congratulations to my 8th graders for participating in the Cradle of Aviation's Magnetic Levitation competition.
 Magnetic Levitation is a method by which an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic fields. Magnetic force is used to counteract the effects of the gravitational acceleration. It is deemed a mode of transportation for the future since it protects our natural resources of fossil fuels.

CONGRATULATIONS 1st Place Winners!!!
Elizabeth Bracht, Maggie Fravert, and Sherfran Louhis
Our budding engineers!

EXTRA HELP PROGRAM


Please check your child's teacher's homepage for the days they are providing extra help. All students in grades 1-8 are afforded the opportunity to attend in the morning from 7:30 AM to 7:55 AM. 

Check your child's class' web page for daily homework, tests, projects and due dates for assignments. This communicative vehicle keeps the home/school connection current! 


Please refrain from pulling into the parking lot to drop students off for extra help before 7:30 am. We are having a number of parents coming early and waiting in their cars blocking the staff from entering the lot to park. Please drop your child off by the curb on 4th street or park on 4th street and walk your child to the door. We have had walkers coming to school and having to navigate their way around cars situated under the breezeway.
This has become a safety issue for all students, teachers and staff. 
Thank you
